The attractive nonlinear Schrödinger equation with an elliptic function potential was considered as a model for trapped, quasi-one-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate. Two new families of periodic solutions of this equation were found and their stability was investigated both analytically and numerically. In addition, stable time-periodic solutions were analyzed. The resulting data was analyzed in detail.
